Caption transcript for “Our Friend the Terrorist” with Zachariah Anani, Part 2

  • 00:10 BRETHREN, MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD FOR ISRAEL IS THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED.
  • 00:15 THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GENTILE.
  • 00:19 FOR THE SAME LORD OVERALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.
  • 00:28 CONSIDERING THE TIMES AND SEASONS OF OUR WORLD TODAY, HERE'S ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 00:35 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 00:37 AS I SAID ON THE LAST PROGRAM, I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENDATIONS FOR THE GUESTS WE HAVE.
  • 00:42 OUR INTERVIEW PROGRAMS APPARENTLY ARE VERY INTERESTING TO YOU.
  • 00:46 WE'VE GOT A REAL LULU TONIGHT. YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THIS PROGRAM.
  • 00:50 WE'RE HAVING BROTHER ZACH, I WOULD CALL HIM
  • 00:54 "OUR FRIEND THE TERRORIST", BECAUSE ZACH WAS A TERRORIST.
  • 00:57 WE WERE ALL SORT OF TERRORISTS BEFORE WE CAME TO CHRIST.
  • 01:00 SOME OF US KILLED PEOPLE, SOME OF US KILLED IDEAS
  • 01:03 AND SOME OF US PRACTICALLY KILLED OURSELVES AND THEN HE SAVED US.
  • 01:07 ZACH, WHO REALLY WAS A KILLER, IS NOW A PURVEYOR OF ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 01:12 SO BROTHER ZACH, THANK YOU FOR COMING.
  • 01:15 NOW YOU'RE, OF COURSE OF LEBANESE BACKGROUND.
  • 01:18 YES, I WAS BORN IN BEIRUT, LEBANON.
  • 01:22 YOU SPEAK THE LANGUAGE, YOU FOUGHT THE FIGHTS.
  • 01:24 26 YEARS AGO, YES, BECAUSE NOW I'M 26 YEARS OLD IN CHRIST.
  • 01:31 YES, THAT LONG. >>WELL, THAT'S LOVELY.
  • 01:33 YOU SPEAK IN THE CHURCHES AND PEOPLE ARE FASCINATED TO HEAR YOU.
  • 01:39 YOU WERE TELLING ME IN THE LAST PROGRAM THEY DON'T CALL YOU AS OFTEN NOW.
  • 01:42 NO, ACTUALLY EITHER BECAUSE IT'S POLITICALLY CORRECT
  • 01:47 OR MAINLY THE CHURCHES ARE INTIMIDATED AND ASLEEP.
  • 01:50 THEY ARE SCARED TO FACE THE FACT THAT NOW IS TIME TO MOVE.
  • 01:55 THAT'S WHY SOMETIMES I THANK GOD FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU,
  • 01:59 WHO ARE REALLY WILLING TO GO FORWARD OR, FOR INSTANCE,
  • 02:02 BROTHER DAVID WILKERSON IN NEW YORK WHO IS REALLY SPEARHEADING THIS
  • 02:08 AND ACTUALLY HE'S A GOOD HELP SOMETIMES FOR ME. PRAISE THE LORD FOR THAT.
  • 02:13 OTHER THAN THAT MAINLY THE CHURCHES REALLY ARE EITHER INTIMIDATED OR ASLEEP.
  • 02:17 I'LL GIVE YOU A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE IN YOUR OWN TOWN.
  • 02:21 THERE IS A BIG CENTER IN A BIG MOSQUE AND FROM MY KNOWLEDGE (ARABIC),
  • 02:28 WHICH IS, PRAISE THE LORD, WHICH FOR ME WAS 18 YEARS OF STUDIES AND ALL OF THAT,
  • 02:33 I WALKED THROUGH THAT CENTER AND I READ SOME OF IT, OF ITS CONTENTS.
  • 02:39 YOU'D BE VERY SURPRISED AND SHOCKED THAT THIS CENTER CONTAINS A SCHOOL.
  • 02:43 FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M GOING TO SAY, IT'S LIKE MUSLIM EVANGELISTS
  • 02:48 AND THERE IS A SCHOOL TO RECRUIT AND TEACH THE PEOPLE WHO COMES TO THIS KIND OF ISLAM.
  • 02:58 THAT MEANS THAT THEY, TO HAVE THAT BIG CENTER THAT MEANS YOU HAVE AT LEAST BETWEEN 15,000
  • 03:04 UP TO MAYBE 30,000 MUSLIMS AROUND YOU THERE.
  • 03:06 IN HERE, IN DALLAS? >>RIGHT.
  • 03:08 SO YOUR WORK IS CUT OUT FOR YOU.
  • 03:11 NOW, REMEMBER THEY ARE OUT TO GET YOU MORE THAN YOU ARE OUT TO GET THEM.
  • 03:16 IT'S YOUR JOB TO GO OUT AND GET THEM.
  • 03:19 WE'RE OUT TO GET THEM TO CHRIST IF WE CAN.
  • 03:21 SOMEBODY GOT YOU AND TO HEAR YOU TELL IT, YOU WERE A PRETTY TOUGH CASE.
  • 03:27 YOU'VE KILLED PEOPLE AND YOU'VE FOUGHT AND YOU--
  • 03:30 YES, AND I THANK GOD THAT HE CHOSE ME OUT OF THE BOTTOM OF THE PIT.
  • 03:36 I DON'T KNOW. I THINK WE'RE ALL IN THE BOTTOM OF THE PIT.
  • 03:39 I LIKE THE STORY WHERE YOU'RE STANDING ON THE BEACH AND LOOKING AT THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA
  • 03:43 AND THINKING IT OVER AND FINALLY YOU THREW YOUR GUN IN THE SEA.
  • 03:45 YES, PRAISE THE LORD FOR THAT.
  • 03:48 YOU KNOW, WHEN A HUMAN BEING, NO MATTER WHO IS HE, TO ME IS THE ISLAMIC FIELD,
  • 03:56 WHEN A MUSLIM REALLY SEEKS GOD HE'LL FIND HIM. IF HE REALLY, REALLY SEEKS HIM.
  • 04:03 NO MATTER HOW THICK IS THE VEIL, LIGHT CAN COME THROUGH.
  • 04:08 IN MY CASE, IT'S ONLY A WORD IN THE STREET.
  • 04:13 IT ONLY IS, IF YOU'RE REALLY SEEKING GOD, HE'LL COME.
  • 04:19 SO A TRUE MUSLIM, IF HE'S REALLY SEEKING GOD, ALL THAT HE HAS TO DO
  • 04:25 IS SURRENDER TO CHRIST AT LEAST ONE TIME AND LET HIM TRY IT.
  • 04:29 LISTEN, IF YOUR CHURCH IS NOT WITNESSING TO MUSLIMS, YOU NEED A GUY LIKE ZACH TO HELP.
  • 04:34 WE HAVE THE EXPERIENCE ALL THE TIME.
  • 04:37 PEOPLE CALL ME TO THEIR CHURCH TO AT LEAST EXPLAIN HOW TO WITNESS TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 04:42 THEY SUPPORT OUR MINISTRY BECAUSE WE GO TO THE JEWS FOR THEM, THIS SORT OF THING.
  • 04:49 IF YOU'RE NOT DOING IT FOR THE MUSLIMS, YOU'RE LEAVING SOMEBODY OUT.
  • 04:51 JESUS KNEW A LOT OF MIDDLE EASTERNERS WHO WERE NOT JEWS.
  • 04:55 HE TALKED TO THE SYROPHOENICIAN WOMAN, HE HEALED THE SERVANT OF THE ROMAN OFFICER AND SO FORTH.
  • 05:01 BROTHER ZOLA, GOD HAD INVESTED IN ME, PRAISE HIM,
  • 05:05 THE KNOWLEDGE OF AT LEAST 20 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE OF TEACHING, DEBATING AND TRAINING.
  • 05:11 IF ANY CHURCH FEELS THAT GOD PUT IN THEIR HEARTS, THEY HAVE TO REACH THE MUSLIM
  • 05:16 AND THEY HAVE TO BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO BE RESPONSIBLE IN FRONT OF GOD FOR THAT,
  • 05:20 THEN I'M VERY MUCH WILLING TO COME AND DO IT FREE.
  • 05:25 LISTEN, GET IN TOUCH WITH US AND WE'LL PASS YOUR LETTER ON TO ZACH
  • 05:28 AND HAVE THIS MAN AT YOUR CHURCH. HE'S TERRIFIC. BELIEVE ME, HE IS.
  • 05:33 HE CAN SAY SO MUCH ABOUT CURRENT EVENTS, AT LEAST, IF NOT THE GOSPEL ITSELF.
  • 05:40 COMING TO THAT, WHAT ABOUT IRAQ? WE'RE AT AN AWKWARD TIME.
  • 05:42 THIS WAR, FOR ALL PRACTICAL PURPOSES IS OVER WITH, BUT STILL HAVE SUICIDE BOMBINGS.
  • 05:47 WE'RE DISCOVERING THAT THERE'S NOT ONE KIND OF CHARACTER TO COPE WITH IN IRAQ,
  • 05:52 THERE'S A HUNDRED KINDS OF CHARACTERS.
  • 05:55 WELL, FIRST OF ALL I'D LIKE YOU TO KNOW THAT FIRST I PRAY DAILY
  • 06:00 AND I THANK GOD DAILY FOR ALL THOSE BRAVE, MAYBE SOMETIMES NOT THE RIGHT MOTIVE,
  • 06:09 BUT BRAVE ENOUGH TO BE THERE AND I REALLY, REALLY PRAY FOR THIS PRESIDENT OF YOURS, GEORGE BUSH.
  • 06:18 AND I'M PRAYING AND I HOPE WE WON'T FALL INTO THE TRAP OF PLAYING IT POLITICALLY CORRECT.
  • 06:26 IT'S OUR TIME, THERE IS AN OPEN THE WINDOW FOR REAL CHRISTIANITY TO BE REVEALED THERE.
  • 06:36 IT'S OUR TIME THAT SOMEHOW THIS ADMINISTRATION WOULD ALLOW
  • 06:41 THE REAL CHRISTIANITY TO SHOW THEIR FACES THERE IF IT'S BY CHARITY WORK,
  • 06:45 OR BY ALLOWING MISSIONARIES TO GO THERE.
  • 06:49 I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE FOR INSTANCE.
  • 06:51 I'M VERY QUITE AND VERY SURE THAT THE AMERICAN ADMINISTRATION
  • 06:55 IS GOING TO SEND BIG AID TO IRAQ; FOOD, CLOTHES, MEDICAL SUPPLIES,WHY NOT BIBLES?
  • 07:03 WHY NOT BIBLES? FRANKLIN GRAHAM IS GOING TO GO THERE.
  • 07:07 HE'S ANNOUNCED THAT HE HAS A MISSION TO BOTH HELP WITH THE FEEDING AND ALL THE REST OF IT,
  • 07:14 PLUS BIBLES, PLUS EVANGELISM.
  • 07:16 WHY, FOR INSTANCE, IF YOUR ADMINISTRATION AND YOU AMERICAN PEOPLE, TAX PAYERS,
  • 07:24 ARE GOING TO CARRY THE BURDEN OF RECREATING A NATION AND RECREATING A SOCIETY,
  • 07:30 A CIVILIZED ONE, A FREE CIVILIZED ONE,
  • 07:33 WHY DON'T YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO GO AND PREACH THE TRUTH,
  • 07:37 YOUR TRUTH TO THEM ACCORDING TO YOUR THINKING?
  • 07:40 WHY, FOR INSTANCE, WOULDN'T YOU SAY,
  • 07:42 IF YOU WANT ME TO BUILD UP A HUNDRED SCHOOLS FOR YOU
  • 07:44 I NEED AT LEAST ONE CHRISTIAN TEACHER TO BE THERE?
  • 07:48 WELL, SURE.
  • 07:50 IN FACT, YOU KNOW THE LIBERAL AMERICAN REPORTERS SAY FRANKLIN GRAHAM
  • 07:55 HAS SOME ULTERIOR MOTIVE, SOME HIDDEN MOTIVE IN DOING WHAT HE IS DOING,
  • 07:58 BUT HE ANNOUNCES LOUD AND CLEAR; I WANT TO FEED THE POOR, I WANT A WITNESS OF CHRIST.
  • 08:03 THIS IS WHAT CHRISTIANS DO. IT'S NOT AN ULTERIOR MOTIVE.
  • 08:06 LISTEN, WHY WOULD YOU IN AMERICA, I'M NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT ANY OTHER COUNTRY,
  • 08:11 WHY WOULD YOU ALLOW, AND THIS WILL GET YOU INTO TROUBLE SOMETIMES,
  • 08:15 ALLOW HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS OF THOSE MUSLIM EVANGELISTS TO COME INTO YOUR COUNTRY,
  • 08:21 GO TO YOUR STREETS, BUILD THEIR MOSQUES, BUILD THEIR CENTERS
  • 08:24 AND COME TO YOUR DOORS CALLING YOU TO ISLAM AND IT'S NOT VIS-A-VERSA.
  • 08:29 WHY CAN'T WE GO THERE AND TELL THEM ABOUT CHRIST.
  • 08:32 THAT'S A CONCEPT THAT HADN'T EVEN OCCURRED TO ME.
  • 08:34 YES, WE SHOULD SEND OUR EVANGELISTS AS WELL AS OUR FOOD AND OUR SOLDIERS, AND HOW.
  • 08:39 LET ME TAKE YOU OVER TO ISRAEL, WHICH HAS A SIMILAR PROBLEM AS TERRORISM.
  • 08:45 I DON'T THINK IT'S SIMILAR, I THINK IT'S EXACTLY THE SAME.
  • 08:47 WHAT SHOULD WE DO ABOUT THAT ONE?
  • 08:49 THE PRESIDENT SAYS HERE'S A ROAD MAP TO CREATE
  • 08:51 INSTEAD OF BREAKING DOWN THE DICTATORSHIP, HE'S BUILDING IT UP.
  • 08:55 I HOPE IT WON'T WORK. YOU KNOW WHY?
  • 08:59 NOT BECAUSE I'M AGAINST PEACE OVER THERE. DON'T MISUNDERSTAND ME.
  • 09:03 BUT OF COURSE THERE WILL BE NO PEACE IF THERE IS NO SOLID PROTECTED STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 09:13 I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE, WHICH I ALWAYS SAY TO A LOT OF MY FRIENDS.
  • 09:19 LET'S SAY THE LAST, RADICAL TERRORISTS LIKE YASSAR ARAFAT OR THE PRESIDENT OF SYRIA;
  • 09:28 SAY, OKAY GUYS, THAT'S IT. WE DON'T WANT TO FIGHT ANYMORE.
  • 09:31 WE'RE GOING TO SIGN A PEACE TREATY WITH ISRAEL,
  • 09:34 EVEN WE'RE GOING TO DISSOLVE ALL OUR MILITARY FORCES.
  • 09:37 WE WANT TO GO TO AGRICULTURE AND BUILD UP THE COUNTRY.
  • 09:40 WE'RE GOING TO BE AN INDUSTRIAL COUNTRY LIKE JAPAN.
  • 09:43 WE DON'T WANT TO FIGHT ANYMORE. WE DON'T WANT TO HOSTILE OUR NEIGHBORS. THAT'S IT.
  • 09:47 THE ISRAELIS CAN LIVE ALONE AND ISRAEL ONLY LET US LIVE WITH NO WARS
  • 09:52 INSTEAD OF PAYING ALL OUR MONEY AND INCOME TO WARS
  • 09:55 WE WANT TO GENERATE A BETTER CIVILIZATION FOR OUR COUNTRIES.
  • 09:59 BELIEVE ME, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED, ALSO IF YOU NOTICED.
  • 10:02 THERE WILL BE ALWAYS GROUPS LIKE HAMAS, LIKE HEZBOLLAH AND MAYBE GENERATED OTHERS WHO WILL SAY,
  • 10:09 UH-OH, WE'LL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT.
  • 10:11 OUR FIGHT IS TO THE END UNTIL THERE IS NO MORE ISRAEL. YOU KNOW WHY?
  • 10:15 BECAUSE IT IS WITHIN THE DOCTRINE.IT IS WITHIN THE GENES OF THE GENERATIONS.
  • 10:20 I SAID ONCE, IF YOU WANT TO ELIMINATE THE HATRED BETWEEN THE NATIONS, AND PUT IT THIS WAY,
  • 10:27 BETWEEN THE ARABS AND THE JEWS, NOT ONLY THE ISRAELIS,
  • 10:31 WE NEED TO TEACH OUR NEW UPCOMING GENERATION TO LOVE.
  • 10:35 WE NEED TO TEACH OUR SONS WHO IS GOING TO BE BORN, BECAUSE TO US IT'S ALREADY A DONE DEAL.
  • 10:40 WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN RAISED THAT WAY
  • 10:43 AND IF IT WASN'T FOR CHRIST'S LOVE I WOULDN'T HAVE CHANGED.
  • 10:48 WELL THAT'S WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO. WE HAVE TO GET CHRIST OVER THERE SOMEHOW.
  • 10:56 THE WHOLE WAR ON TERRORISM IS REALLY,
  • 10:59 AS MUCH AS THEY SAY IT'S NOT A WAR ON ISLAM, IN A WAY IT IS.
  • 11:03 IT'S A WAR ON UNBELIEF. IT'S A WAR ON--
  • 11:07 LET ME USE MY GOLDEN FORMULA. IT IS A FIGHT BETWEEN RIGHT AND EVIL;
  • 11:17 BETWEEN RIGHTEOUSNESS AND EVIL. CHRISTIANITY OR CHRISTIANS IF YOU WANT TO PUT IT THIS WAY
  • 11:23 COULD BE BAD, COULD BE THIEVES, COULD BE MASSACRES.
  • 11:27 LOOK AT THE ONE WHO DID THAT IN OKLAHOMA. HE'S FROM A BAPTIST CHURCH.
  • 11:31 THAT'S NOT THE DOCTRINE. THE DOCTRINE IS DIVINE AND HOLY.
  • 11:34 SOMEONE COULD STAND UP AND SAY; I'M SENT BY GOD TO FIGHT ALL THE WORLD
  • 11:39 UNTIL THEY BECOME CHRISTIANS, BUT THAT'S HIS OWN WORDS.
  • 11:42 IF YOU GO TO THE DOCTRINE, TO THE TEACHING, TO CHRISTIANITY ITSELF,
  • 11:46 IT IS PURE, IT'S DIVINE.
  • 11:49 MUSLIMS COULD BE VERY NICE PEOPLE, HOSPITABLE PEOPLE, VERY REAL GOOD PEOPLE,
  • 11:56 BUT THE DOCTRINE IS BAD AND EVIL.WHY?
  • 11:59 BECAUSE WITHIN THE DOCTRINE IF YOU ARE NOT A MUSLIM, YOU'RE DEAD.
  • 12:06 IN "THE DEFENSE WARS" OF MOHAMMED AND HIS HOLY KINGS AFTER HIM,
  • 12:14 THE GENERAL OF THE ARMY WILL REACH THE GATES OF THE CITY AND THEN HE WILL SAY TO THEM,
  • 12:20 ARE YOU AN EXAMPLE OF (ARABIC NAME),
  • 12:22 THE GREATEST GENERAL WHO WAS ONE OF MOHAMMED'S REAL, REAL CLOSE FRIENDS OR CLOSE STUDENTS.
  • 12:29 AND HE SAYS, I CAME TO YOU, THE PEOPLE, WHO LOVE DEATH LIKE YOU LOVE LIFE;
  • 12:34 YOU HAVE 3 THINGS TO CHOSE OF.
  • 12:36 EITHER YOU BECAME MUSLIMS AND YOU DO WHAT WE DO AND YOU HAVE RESPONSIBILITIES LIKE US
  • 12:41 OR YOU BECAME SLAVES OF THE EMPIRE, THE THIRD RATE CITIZEN, YOU PAY A TRIBUTE
  • 12:49 OR YOU FIGHT TO THE DEATH. YOU KILL US OR WE KILL YOU.
  • 12:53 HE'S OUR FRIEND, BROTHER ZACH.
  • 12:55 I CALL HIM OUR FRIEND THE TERRORIST. THAT'S TONGUE IN CHEEK.
  • 12:58 HE'S NOT A TERRORIST ANYMORE, HE'S A CHRISTIAN.
  • 13:00 YET WE GO TO PEOPLE OF REAL BACKGROUNDS IN THE PROBLEMS WE DISCUSS
  • 13:07 AND HE IS LEBANESE, PHOENICIAN. HE SPEAKS PERFECT ARABIC.
  • 13:11 YOU'LL HEAR HIM SPEAK IT LATER IN THE PROGRAM.
  • 13:15 HE AGREES WITH ALL OF US. THE SOLUTION, OF COURSE, IS JESUS CHRIST.
  • 13:19 WE'LL BE BACK WITH BROTHER ZACH RIGHT AFTER THIS.
  • 13:24 FOR A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE ON WHAT IS HAPPENING IN ISRAEL AND THE MIDDLE EAST

  • 14:01 AND ASSEMBLE YOU OUT OF THE COUNTRIES WHERE YOU'VE BEEN SCATTERED
  • 14:05 AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 14:08 THE WILDERNESS AND THE DRY LAND SHALL BE GLAD.
  • 14:11 THE DESERT SHALL REJOICE AND BLOSSOM AS THE ROSE.
  • 14:15 YOU SHALL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD WHEN I BRING YOU INTO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 14:23 WELL, THAT'S OUR TOUR OF ISRAEL. LET ME GIVE YOU A TIP.
  • 14:26 WE'RE TAKING A TOUR AT THE END OF THIS MONTH.
  • 14:29 YOU CAN LEAVE MAY 29 OR A FEW DAYS LATER. THERE ARE 2 DIFFERENT DEPARTURES.
  • 14:34 THIS IS THE TOUR OF A LIFETIME. IT'S SO SMALL.
  • 14:39 THAT'S THE WHOLE IDEA IN GROUP TOURS IS TO GET A SMALL ONE.
  • 14:42 I KNOW THAT THE TOURISTS WHO COME RIGHT AT THE END MAKE THE BEST OF PILGRIMS.
  • 14:46 SO COME ON.CALL US UP. LET'S GET OVER THERE. IT'S WONDERFUL THERE NOW.
  • 14:50 THERE'S NO PROBLEM AND I'D LIKE TO BUILD THIS TOUR UP A LITTLE BIT
  • 14:54 AND SHOW ISRAEL THAT WE'RE BEHIND HER.
  • 14:58 ZACH, I DON'T KNOW. YOU'VE HAD A LOT OF EXPERIENCE OVER THERE.
  • 15:04 YOU KNOW IT OCCURRED TO ME THAT YOU HAVE A SISTER IN THE GOSPEL.
  • 15:08 THE WOMAN, IT SAYS IN MY SCOFIELD BIBLE,
  • 15:10 THE SYROPHOENICIAN'S WOMAN'S DAUGHTER IS HEALED.
  • 15:14 SYROPHOENICIAN IS WHAT YOU ARE. >>YES.
  • 15:22 THAT'S WHERE YOU LIVED. >>EXACTLY.
  • 15:24 THAT'S WHERE YOU THREW YOUR GUN INTO THE MEDITERRANEAN.
  • 15:26 YES.YOU SEE I SPEAK ARABIC, I'M NOT AN ARAB. I'M A SYROPHOENICIAN.
  • 15:32 YES, YES, AND NEITHER IS THIS WOMAN.
  • 15:43 AND IT ENDS ON A HAPPY NOTE.
  • 15:51 WHO IS THIS WOMAN WHO HAD MORE FAITH THAN ALL THE SO-CALLED CHOSEN PEOPLE?
  • 15:54 SHE WAS A LEBANESE WOMAN.
  • 15:57 YOU SEE, WHEN GOD CHOOSES SOMEONE FROM OUTSIDE THE FAMILY OF ISRAEL
  • 16:07 AND WHEN THEY COME TO HIM, LIKE I WAS SHARING WITH YOUR WIFE,
  • 16:12 TRULY COME TO HIM, THEY KNOW WHAT IS BEHIND,
  • 16:16 SO THEY REALLY TRULY COME AND THEIR FAITH IS AS STRONG AS.
  • 16:21 IN CHRISTIANITY AND THIS IS WHAT LACKS IN YOUR COUNTRY, CHRISTIANITY.
  • 16:26 CHRISTIANITY HAS A PRICE TAG. PEOPLE FORGOT THAT.
  • 16:31 THAT'S WHY WHEN A GUY LIKE ME COMES TO CHRIST HE KNOWS THE PRICE TAG.
  • 16:35 YOU KNOW IN THE PAST 20 YEARS THEY'VE TRIED TO KILL ME 15 TIMES?
  • 16:38 15 TIMES? YOU'RE PRETTY HARD TO KILL.
  • 16:40 PRAISE THE LORD FOR THAT. EVEN HERE IN THE STATES I WAS ATTACKED IN DETROIT.
  • 16:44 THEY BURNED MY CAR AND THEY ATTACKED ME. IT'S THE STORY OF LIFE.
  • 16:48 SO, THERE IS A PRICE YOU PAY FOR YOUR CHRISTIANITY.
  • 16:51 IT'S NOT JUST A CLUB YOU COME IN AND YOU GO OUT OF IT.
  • 16:54 WHO ATTACKED YOU, ZACH?
  • 16:56 IN DETROIT? >>YES.
  • 16:58 WELL, SOME YEMENI ARABS WHO WERE VERY MAD BECAUSE GOD USED ME TO CONVERT ONE OF THEIR KEY PEOPLE.
  • 17:05 SO THEY GO AFTER THE MESSENGER.
  • 17:12 WELL, I HAD A MISSIONARY ONCE WHOSE FIELD WAS THE SINAI DESERT.
  • 17:16 I SAID TO HIM, YOU MUST GET SOME TOUGH CUSTOMERS.
  • 17:18 HE SAID, PERSECUTION IS THE PROPER EXERCISE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 17:23 THE AMERICAN CHURCH IS WEAK AND FLABBY BECAUSE IT DOESN'T GET ENOUGH EXERCISE.
  • 17:28 BUT YOU SEE GOD HAD BLESSED YOU WITH A PLACE WHERE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT,
  • 17:35 WHICH YOU PAID BLOOD AND SOULS FOR IT,
  • 17:38 TO GO OUT AND TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT YOUR FAITH AND TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT CHRIST.
  • 17:43 YOU'VE GAINED THE RIGHT AND YOU CAN DO IT.
  • 17:46 AND I CAN'T UNDERSTAND, REALLY, WHY THE CHURCHES ARE NOT DOING THAT.
  • 17:50 MUSLIMS NOW ARE AT YOUR GATES AND IN FRONT OF YOUR DOORS
  • 17:55 AND YOUR SCHOOLS AND YOUR UNIVERSITIES.
  • 17:57 YOU DON'T HAVE TO CROSS ANY MORE OCEANS AND DESERTS AND MOUNTAINS TO REACH THEM.
  • 18:01 YOU ARE CALLED TO DO IT HERE.
  • 18:04 HERE, EVEN AS I SAID, THERE IS A BIG CENTER WHICH WILL MAYBE CONTAIN ABOUT 15,000 TO 20,000 MUSLIMS AROUND IN YOUR AREA.
  • 18:12 SO, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
  • 18:14 TRYING TO BE POLITICALLY CORRECT.
  • 18:16 SANDRA AND I DROVE, I KNOW WHERE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT,
  • 18:18 WE DROVE INTO THE PARKING LOT OF THAT--
  • 18:21 WE WANTED TO SEE THE SHRINE AND SEE WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE AND SO ON.
  • 18:25 THEY WERE HAVING AN OPEN HOUSE. IT LOOKED LIKE A BAPTIST CHURCH. THEY WERE SMILING.
  • 18:29 THE DEACONS, IN EFFECT, IN COATS AND TIES GREETING PEOPLE,
  • 18:34 SHOWING CARS IN AND FINDING THEM A PLACE TO PARK, SHAKING HANDS AND SO ON.
  • 18:38 NOW THEY ARE USING YOUR OWN METHOD, MY FRIEND.
  • 18:41 OH YES, THEY LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF AMERICAN.
  • 18:47 YOU'RE AN EXPERT IN THE KORAN. YOU'VE READ IT. YOU'VE READ IT IN THE ORIGINAL.
  • 18:51 WHAT'S INTERESTING YOU WERE SHOWING US THAT TRANSLATIONS
  • 18:54 ARE TURNED AROUND AND CHANGED SLIGHTLY IN ENGLISH FOR AMERICAN CONSUMPTION.
  • 18:59 RIGHT.FIRST, YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT IN ISLAMIC FAITH YOU CAN ONLY PRAY IN ARABIC.
  • 19:06 YOU CAN ONLY READ YOUR HOLY BOOK IN ARABIC.
  • 19:09 IS THIS TRUE EVEN IN INDONESIA OR--?
  • 19:11 ANYWHERE YOU WANT; IN AMERICA, IN CHINA, IN INDONESIA ANYWHERE YOU ARE
  • 19:17 YOU HAVE TO PRAY IN ARABIC AND YOU HAVE TO READ YOUR BOOK IN ARABIC,
  • 19:23 OTHERWISE IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO GOD.WHY?
  • 19:27 ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS, BECAUSE THERE IS PLENTY OF OTHER REASONS,
  • 19:30 BECAUSE WHEN YOU TRANSLATE THE MUSLIM HOLY BOOK, THE KORAN,
  • 19:36 INTO ANOTHER LANGUAGE, YOU ARE IN BIG TROUBLE.
  • 19:39 THAT'S WHY THEY MODIFY THE TRANSLATION THAT THE WORLD ACCEPT THE IDEA.
  • 19:44 THEY CHANGE IT AROUND.
  • 19:46 SHOW ME A VERSE THAT THEY'VE CHANGED.
  • 19:48 FOR INSTANCE, GO TO CHAPTER 112.
  • 19:51 IN ARABIC, I'LL SAY IT IN ARABIC AND THEN I'LL TRANSLATE IT THE WAY THEY TRANSLATE IT
  • 19:57 AND I'LL TRANSLATE IT THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.
  • 19:59 [SPEAKING ARABIC]
  • 20:05 THEY TRANSLATE IT; SAY THAT GOD IS ALLAH, THE ONE, THE ONLY ONE.
  • 20:11 ACTUALLY, THE WORD "THE" AND "THE ONLY" DOES NOT EXIST IN THE ARABIC TEXT.
  • 20:17 IT SHOULD READ; SAY THAT ALLAH IS GOD, A GOD.
  • 20:23 TO EXPLAIN IT TO YOU VERY QUICKLY, IN ARABIC THERE IS THE KNOWN AND THE UNKNOWN.
  • 20:29 THE UNKNOWN IS LIKE YOU SET A MAN IN A ROOM FULL OF 100 MEN.
  • 20:34 IT COULD BE ANY ONE OF THEM, BECAUSE ONE, A, ONE IS AN UNKNOWN NUMBER OF A BIG NUMBER.
  • 20:41 BUT IF YOU SAID, THE MAN, THEN EVERYBODY DISAPPEARS
  • 20:44 AND THERE IS NOTHING BUT THAT MAN IN FRONT OF YOU.
  • 20:47 SO IN MY DEBATE WITH A MUSLIM SCHOLAR I SAID TO HIM IT SAYS IN ARABIC [SPEAKING ARABIC].
  • 20:53 THAT MEANS A ONE, A ONE OUT OF MANY HOW MANY NUMBERS, BECAUSE THE CHRISTIANS SAY 3.
  • 20:58 YOU GIVE ME A NUMBER IF YOU PLEASE.
  • 21:01 THE WORD IS THE SAME IN HEBREW, [SPEAKING HEBREW], ONE, SINGULAR.
  • 21:05 IN ENGLISH THE INDEFINITE ARTICLE, A, LIKE YOU SAID, A GOD.
  • 21:09 HE COULD BE ONE OF A HUNDRED GODS.
  • 21:11 THE IRONY OF THAT, THE SAME VERSE, THE SAME SURRAH IS THE SECOND WORD.
  • 21:16 IT SAYS [SPEAKING ARABIC], THE EVERLASTING.
  • 21:19 SO THERE IS NO ONE EVERLASTING BUT HIM BECAUSE THEY USE THE WORD THE L.
  • 21:25 IT DOESN'T EXIST IN THE BEGINNING.
  • 21:27 IT'S NOT IN THE ORIGINAL? >>NO.
  • 21:29 SO KNOW THAT WHEN WE HEAR SOMEBODY QUOTE THE KORAN OVER HERE IN ENGLISH
  • 21:35 OR WHEN DUKE UNIVERSITY OR SOME OTHER POLITICALLY CORRECT PLACE TEACHES ARABIC,
  • 21:40 OR TEACHES THE VERSES FROM THE KORAN THEY'RE JUST TEACHING A SANITIZED VERSION.
  • 21:45 I'LL GIVE YOU ANOTHER EXAMPLE. WHEN THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT THE END OF CHRIST IN THE KORAN
  • 21:49 IN ARABIC IT IS VERY CLEAR. IT SAYS [SPEAKING ARABIC].
  • 21:53 THAT MEANS, I'M PUTTING DEATH ON YOU.
  • 21:56 BUT THEY TRANSLATE IT AS I'M COLLECTING YOU.
  • 22:00 WHAT ABOUT JIHAD? THIS WORD, WHICH TO US MEANS HOLY WAR,
  • 22:04 THEY SAY, OH NO, IT'S A STRUGGLE A SPIRITUAL STRUGGLE. WHAT IS IT?
  • 22:08 IN THAT CASE, WHAT WAS THE SPIRITUAL-- I'M GOING TO WALK YOU THE SECOND MILE.
  • 22:11 WHAT WAS THE SPIRITUAL STRUGGLE OF ALL THE JIHAD ARMIES, WHICH EXTENDED FROM 610 UP TO 1011
  • 22:19 AND CONQUERED MOST OF THE EASTERN HEMISPHERE.
  • 22:21 RIGHT, EXACTLY.
  • 22:23 NO, JIHAD WE UNDERSTAND.
  • 22:25 IT IS HOLY WAR.
  • 22:27 ACTUALLY, BETWEEN THE YEAR 611 IN THE YEAR 900 THE MUSLIM FOCUS OF THE INDIVIDUAL
  • 22:36 IS TO GO TO WHAT WE CALL (ARABIC) THAT MEANS THE FRONT LINES.
  • 22:41 SO HE WILL DO THE JIHAD.
  • 22:43 THE GREATEST (ARABIC), HOLY KING WAS (ARABIC).
  • 22:51 WHEN HE DIED HE ASKED THEM TO PUT HIS HAT, OR WHAT LIKE THE JEW--
  • 22:56 CROWN, OH, THE SKULL CAP, THE YAMAKA.
  • 23:00 WRITTEN ON IT (ARABIC). THAT MEANS PILGRIMAGE AND CONQUEROR FOR THE JIHAD.
  • 23:07 THAT MEANS HE DID JIHAD ONE YEAR HE HAS TO GO TO HAJ, ONE YEAR HE IS TO GO TO JIHAD AND CONQUER.
  • 23:13 SO RELIGIOUS DUTY AND THEN THE WAR.
  • 23:16 YOU KNOW CHRISTIANS DO THE SAME IN A WAY.
  • 23:20 IN AMERICA, I DON'T MEAN CHRISTIANS, BUT MORMONS HAVE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT BIBLE.
  • 23:24 CATHOLICS MAKE SUBTLE CHANGES IN TRANSLATION.
  • 23:27 LET ME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU.
  • 23:29 LET ME EXPLAIN SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE MUSLIMS HIT US WITH THIS.
  • 23:34 IN ISLAM THE WORD, THE WRITTEN WORD,
  • 23:37 THIS WRITTEN WORD ESPECIALLY IN ARABIC IS IMPECCABLE.
  • 23:41 YOU CAN'T EVEN TOUCH IT WITH YOUR FINGER.
  • 23:43 YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CEREMONIAL WASH BEFORE YOU CAN READ IT.
  • 23:46 LIKE IN JUDAISM. YES.
  • 23:47 BECAUSE THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT GOD IS SPEAKING, EVEN THE LANGUAGE.
  • 23:53 IN CHRISTIANITY THE BIBLE, WHICH IS IN YOUR HAND ONLY THE REVELATION IS IMPECCABLE,
  • 24:00 NOT THE VERSE, NOT THE WRITTEN WORD, NOT THE INK, NOT THE PAPER.
  • 24:04 I'LL GIVE YOU A VERY QUICK EXAMPLE.
  • 24:08 YOU CAN NOT CHANGE ANY WORD IN THE KORAN, NOT EVEN THE MEANING.
  • 24:10 EVEN IF IT TELLS YOU SOMETHING VERY STUPID LIKE THE SUN IS GOING IN THE MERCURY OF CLAY.
  • 24:15 YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT. IT IS THERE. RIGHT?
  • 24:17 BUT IN THE BIBLE IF YOU GO TO-- THERE IS A VERSE,
  • 24:21 IF YOUR SIN IS AS DARK AS NIGHT IT WILL BE AS WHITE AS SNOW.
  • 24:24 TAKE THAT SENTENCE TO A PEASANT IN THE MIDDLE OF SAUDI ARABIA
  • 24:27 AND SAY IF YOUR SINS IS AS DARK AS NIGHT IT WILL BE AS WHITE AS SNOW,
  • 24:31 HE'LL OPEN HIS MOUTH. WHAT IS HE TALKING ABOUT?!
  • 24:34 HE'S NEVER SEEN SNOW IN HIS LIFE. >>HE NEVER SAW SNOW.
  • 24:36 BUT IF YOU SAID TO HIM, IF YOUR SIN IS AS DARK AS NIGHT
  • 24:38 IT WILL BE AS WHITE AS WOOL, HE'LL GRASP IT.
  • 24:43 YOU DID NOT CHANGE THE REVELATION, YOU ONLY CHANGED THE MEANING OF THE WORD.
  • 24:47 FROM THAT POINT THE OTHERS, LIKE MORMONS AND THE OTHERS LIKE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES
  • 24:52 PLAY ON THE WORD, BUT NOT IN THE ORIGINAL REVELATION.
  • 24:57 THAT'S WHY IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE ORIGINAL REVELATION AND OBEY IT.
  • 25:02 THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS I LOVE THE JEWS ABOUT IT.
  • 25:05 THEY GUARD THE WORD. >>OH THEY DO.
  • 25:08 THEY USE A POINTER, SINCE YOU SAID DON'T TOUCH IT WITH YOUR FINGER.
  • 25:11 THEY USE A POINTER WHEN THEY READ FROM THE TORAH, THE LAW.
  • 25:16 ZACH, I WANTED TO SAVE A MINUTE HERE FOR YOU TO, AND YOU DID THIS IN THE LAST PROGRAM,
  • 25:21 TALK TO YOUR MUSLIM BROTHER AND IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE.
  • 25:25 TALK TO THEM IN ARABIC THEN TRANSLATE FOR US.
  • 25:28 I'LL SAY IT IN ARABIC AND ENGLISH BECAUSE THERE ARE MUSLIMS WHO DOESN'T KNOW ARABIC
  • 25:31 LIKE PAKISTANIS, AFGHANS AND ALL OF THAT.
  • 25:35 [SPEAKING ARABIC]
  • 26:12 MY DEAR FRIEND THE MUSLIM, THERE IS NO REASON FOR YOU TO LOSE.
  • 26:17 THERE IS NO WAY THAT YOU CAN REALLY WIN THE WHOLE WORLD AND LOSE YOURSELF.
  • 26:23 THERE IS NO NEED FOR THAT.
  • 26:26 ALL THAT YOU NEED TO DO IS COME TO CHRIST BECAUSE HE SAID THAT HE IS THE RIGHT WAY AND THE SALVATION.
  • 26:32 YOU CAN NEVER FIND, NOT EVEN ONE MUSLIM, NO MATTER WHO IS HE
  • 26:36 WHO WILL TELL YOU WHAT WILL BE HIS END. THAT MEANS YOU'RE LOST.
  • 26:40 THE BLIND CAN'T LEAD THE BLIND. COME TO CHRIST AND YOU WILL SEE THAT LIGHT.THANK YOU.
  • 26:47 WONDERFUL, ZACH.
  • 26:49 AND IN HEBREW, [SPEAKING HEBREW], THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.
  • 26:56 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM, PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
